  • : Online

An education event recorded for online viewing, to provide an update for GP’s on risk factors for low back pain, screening tools, and evidence for non pharmacological therapies including exercise, manual therapy, and acupuncture in the management of low back pain.

Relevance to General Practice

The appropriate management for non-specific back pain may include education, non-pharmacological therapies, and the management of confounding psychosocial stressors. Lack of time and clinician confidence can mean that these strategies are under-utilised. This online activity provides an update for GPs on risk factors for low back pain, screening tools, and evidence for non-pharmacological therapies including exercise, manual therapy, and acupuncture in the management of low back pain.
